The idea of having these collection type things and amazing people that help you, but has plenty to improve on as a whole and that's amazing

Dave Strider: "Lovely, Addicting Game"★★★★☆
Posted: 07/Jan/2017 20:14:23 (6 years ago)
I've been playing PokeFarm since I was around... 13 years old? So it has been a wild 4, almost 5 years with this game and the "brand" if you will. In this review, I will be talking about my time on PFQ, some struggles I have had, as well as triumphs I've discovered.
Since joining PFQ in May of 2014, I have made quite a few friends, no enemies in my books, and have seen staff come and go. When I first joined, I was addicted to the point of clicking in to the wee hours of sunrise during the summer, trying to progress as fast as possible. I had no real tutorial or task goals to look at on what to do, so as I got more and more exhausted (which was MY fault), it became harder and harder to stay interested as collecting new eggs became challenging. When inviting friends, it became hard for them to stay interested in the game with the main goal being to collect as many unique Pokemon. Thankfully, with the recode and updates every few days or weeks, the website and game have become much more newbie friendly. It really helps to bring in some of my friends and have them enjoy this game with me. Spending my time on here, has been a wonderful investment for me and the few friends I have invited on over.
Struggles that I have had were finding people to trade evolve with, talking to others, and staying interested. Now, this is my fault once again, but please hear me out. Since I was a wee pre-teen, it's hard for me to be confrontational and ask for things, it is part of who I am. I know many others suffer from that characteristic and find it hard to overcome, so personal messaging other users? Out of the question, for the longest of times! I would only interact with other players (interact as in messaging, and trading) when they approached me. It was shocking to see such a lovely community interact with little ol' me, but it was nice. Thankfully, I have seemed to overcome confrontation for the most part.
Since I pretty much summed up my first two struggles, I'll move on to the last one I have had, which is staying interested. It has been a constant struggle for me to stay interested as a normal user. With school and other games, I encounter times where PFQ just is not fun anymore. Sure, the tasks can be fun, and it can be exhilarating unlocking new summons or the Shiny and Albino Radars, but then once it gets to hunting, the motivation stops. Especially if it is for Melanistic Pokemon (such a cool concept!), and I feel like maybe a tracking percentage for the chances of one should be in place somewhere. The percentage of chance for Shiny Pokemon has always helped me stay motivated, but now with hunts for Melanistics, it is a struggle to stay interested, unless there is a huge event. (Off Topic: I should probably look for any suggestions like this on the forum.)
Overall, I have made a bunch of progress on this game since I joined PFQ (almost 3 years ago oh my gosh!). I have made acquaintances and friends, as well as watched reliable members turn into Staff. A lot of triumphs have come with being on the site for so long, such as unlocking Arceus's summon, hatching my first random shiny, and hatching my first hunted shiny. This game makes the users feel accomplished when they are rewarded, even if it is by a SMALL CHANCE! People congratulate them, possibly trade others gifts for their birthdays, and so much more. A triumph that PFQ has made in total is making the community less toxic. The original PokeFarm had a very toxic community, with members who felt cheated calling out staff members on a ludicrous things. Here, I feel safer as a user as I do not see this type of behavior anymore. The user-base in my opinion is so much nicer and more adaptive than it ever has been for the PokeFarm brand. So I congratulate the entire website for making that possible.
This game, PFQ, has been a very great game for me and many other users. People make friends, meet significant others, and just grow bonds with people from around the world. I give it four of five stars, as I do not see it as perfect, it is very hard to be perfect, and I know that the Staff have a lot more to show to the users. I have experienced a very nice time on this website, and hope to stay on it for many years to come. Thank you for taking the time for reading this, no matter if you're a user or a staff member. There is probably more that I intended to write(type?), but I feel like it would be repeated points that I have already made. Again, thank you. :)

I love Pokefarm! It's pretty much my tertiary internet home.
Honestly though, this is an amazing site.

I had made an account back on PF1 and then decided to come back a few years later. I stopped for a while due to school and such, but picked back up a few months ago. Now I can't stop. I check pokefarm first thing in the morning, and it's the last thing I check before going to bed. I really enjoy the game, although sometimes when done clicking a party or a field some of the Pokémons are unclicked and I have to do it again. But I am glad the double tapping on mobile is fixed though!!

This site is awesome! The interaction system is genius and a great way to help others and help your own Pokémon level up when people clickback. Everyone is friendly, and the staff are very helpful! Thanks for making this site!

I had played the old PF for a good few years, and now have been playing this one for nearly four years. I've watched it grow and transform. I am quite openly addicted to this site, there's always something to do. I send full appreciation to all of the staff that have made it all possible. Keep up the good work guys. Much love xox

I really like Pokefarm Q! It has improved much from the old one!
But what I need to say:
- Heck, I would probably buy Hypermode, if it weren't so expensive. I understand the need to pay the servers, but I just personally feel it's too much. ZCs and Hypermode are required for a rather many things, but I am not willing to pay 67,50 euros for one year. That's more than one year of Amazon Prime, and there I have unlimited music, many free movies and don't need to do a thing, as opposed to almost being forced to go around clicking like mad. I know it can't exactly be compared, but it feels off.
Speaking of clicking, here's my next point:
- Pokefarm is something I want to spend half an hour on daily, at most. Clicking is a monotonous duty that can be quite annoying. I really wanted a Premium Box on the last day of the 12 days of Christmas, but I simply didn't have the time to click more than 20.000(!) times. Often, I don't even manage to hit my personal goal on the Mass Click Weekend. Usually, my hand starts to hurt like hell after 1.000, simply because I've got chronical Arthritis (funny enough, young people can have that too..). Clicking is something you can't do much without. For example, right now I want to breed exclusives, and noticed that it seems as if there are no eggs being bred if you do not click. However, breeding pokemon is something I really want to do, and this kind of handicaps me. I would search for another game, but the art (especially the exclusives and megas) really draws me in.
Those two are my main points, but I have a little wish that I hope can be granted in the far future:
- I missed the PokeTransfer. You know, where you could transfer your old pokefarm to the Pokefarm Q. It's a secret dream of mine that this returns. If it does, this would bump my rating up to 4, because I had really nice pokes on there that I miss badly. :)
That would be all I can think of right now, I hope you aren't angry at me for stating what I feel, it's not intended to be a personal attack. Thank you for taking the time to read through this!

SystemSolar: "A Well-Beloved Site"★★★★☆

I have been a member of this community since PF1, where I joined around 2011 or 2012 probably. I've always enjoyed the site and the community, because it provides such a pleasant experience. You might think "oh, clicking can't be fun", but it is. It gives me something to do and it's a signature feature of most adoptable websites. I started this website as a little hobby, but now I've become fully invested in it, having spent so many years on both sites. My 2 year anniversary on PFQ is coming up, and that just shows that people can stay dedicated to such a fun, yet simple site. There are so many great features, from basic Pokemon functions such as trading to the site's own creations in the boosts (a la Niet interaction boost). The staff are also incredibly kind and I'm very thankful for that, as there been too many times I've joined a website, only to be greeted by mean or rude staff members. However, the site is not without its flaws, and that can be found in the various bugs, but those are to be expected. Overall, PFQ is an incredible website and it helps drive my passion for Pokemon. Thank you for so many great memories and a great time on both sites. It's very appreciated!

ShinyPøkémans: "Awesome features and nice staff"★★★★★
Posted: 07/Jan/2017 20:00:09 (6 years ago)
This is a pretty cool site with lots of places to check out like the daycare, shelter, fields, and a whole lot more. Since Niet is still adding things the site is most likely going to get bigger and more popular. The staff are also pretty amazing people. They make sure to keep the site child friendly so everyone can enjoy it. They even sometimes interact with the users on the chat and well...Just chat with us. In my experience whenever I do something that is not right they send me a PM telling me so and they do it so kindly and when I get that I feel okay and realize my mistake. They make sure to be nice but still get there message through
(I'm pretty sure I lost my point halfway through)
